Prince George, BC, Canada / CKPG News

On this International Women’s Day, Stats Canada says, more women are in leadership roles in the public sector where pay equity is the law than in the private sector. The report from the national statistics office says, gender parity existed in the public sector in 2015, when 54 percent of legislators and senior government managers and officials were women. The percentage of women in similar positions in the private sector was 25.6 percent. The Liberals won’t move on pay equity legislation until 2018 at the earliest.
